Patrick Bamford continued his good scoring run for MK Dons with the opening goal in their 2-0 Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over Northampton Town.

The 19-year old forward, on loan from Chelsea, struck in the 54th minute as the Dons eased through to the second round of the competition.

Bamford volleyed home Crystal Palace loanee Jason Banton's deflected effort from close range for his fourth goal of the campaign in eight appearances.

Dele Alli added a second for MK in the 58th minute, converting Banton's cutback, after Ishmel Demontagnac was sent off for Northampton just after the half-hour mark.
